As quickly as it started, a fish kill in Baltimore’s Inner Harbor appears to be easing.
The goal of making the Inner Harbor swimmable and fishable in seven years is a daunting task for one non-profit group, especially in the wake of this week’s heavy pollution that killed hundreds of fish in the harbor.

A fish kill is spreading in and around Baltimore’s waterways. Tens of thousands of dead fish and crabs are floating at the surface and stinking up the waterfront. It’s bad for the environment and bad for business downtown.
A very smelly problem. Tons of dead fish are washing up in Ocean City.
An unpleasant reminder of the massive striped bass poaching last winter has surfaced in the bay. Like past cases, an illegally anchored gill net was used.
